Would not be any more diflloult to tell than a little one. It is just
as mean to tell a baby lie as it Is a foff-grb%n one. It is just as
•teal one dollar as a million. It,is just as wearing on
your oonsoienoe to murder one roan' as a dosen. But 1 am not
gtfng to advise you to do either. 1 will simply ask you not to
*> worry and advise you to drink, plenty of fresh, sparkling Uthia

It Is Coming.
More than fifty of our best cit-
izens representing almost every
business interest in the oity,
turned out in response to the oall
issued in the Index Wednesday,
and aooepted the hospitality of
the W M W A N W Ry by taking
a trip to Weatherford to empha<
oize the fact that Mineral Wells
wanted, ddbs want and will have
the next session of the Texas
Christian Missionary convention.
When Weatherford was reach-
ed these representatives proceed'
ed in a body to the Central
Christian ohuroh, where they
were reinforoed by some twenty
other oitizens of Mineral Wells,
who had preoeded them. After
a few moments, plaoe was made
on the program and Hon F C
Highsmith proceeded to convinoe
the people assembled that Min-
eral Wells was oapable of enter-
tatning anything that happened
to come her way
The result was that the lec-
tureship assembled decided that
their mother, the Texas Chris-
tian Missionary Society, was a
wise body for selecting Mineral
Wells as its next plaoe of meet-
ng. Not only this, but from
thetalkaround.it would seem
that many people are already
Mineral Wells* friends.
This only emph s ses the ne-
cessity of an organisation in our
oity to look after such things as
this. There is no reason why,
with the proper work, the Texas
Synod of both the Presbyterian
and Cumberland Presbyterian
churches, the Northwest Texas
M E ohuroh conference, theTex<
as Babtist convention and all
other suoh bodies oan not be
>rought to Mineral Wells. And
t is only a question 1 of a short
time, if we put forth a little en-
ergy, when we can have the
democratic and republican ktate
conventions. All we need is to
get after them.
